Fresh Fries

  • 1-3 medium sized russet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch fries

Frozen French Fries

  • 1-2 lbs Frozen French Fries


Fresh Fries

  • Soak the cut potatoes for 1 hour in a bowl of water.
  • Drain the potatoes and dry them with a paper towel or kitchen towel. Then place them in a dry bowl and add oil.
  • Set your Air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and Air fry for 22-30 minutes. Shake the basket every 5 minutes.

Frozen Fries

  • First, place the frozen fries in the Air Fryer basket. DO NOT ADD OIL. Air Fry on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-12 minutes.


  • Nutrition info calculated and provided is for fresh fries, not frozen. 
  • Different Air fryers cook at different temperatures depending on the wattage of the air fryer, the basket type, and how many fries you place in the basket, so the cooking time will vary from machine to machine.
